Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Title: Hawai`i Creole English
Subtitle: A Typological Analysis of the Tense-Mood-Aspect System
Written By: Viveka Velupillai
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=0-333-99340-3
Description:

Are there common specific patterns in the Tense-Mood-Aspect systems of Creoles? Do Creoles constitute a structural type of language? This in-depth synchronic description of the Tense-Mood-Aspect system of contemporary Hawai'i Creole English, is a language-internal analysis based on extensive first-hand data, both written and spoken. The language variety has been used as a basis for major linguistic hypotheses - a strength of this book is the use of a language-independent typological framework, placing the system in a cross-linguistic perspective.
